 1294 QCAD BugtrackerdxflibBug ReportMedium Hatches scale differently now from earlier releases ClosedPeter Task Description

Something with hatching changed between 3.10 and 3.12; Changelog for 3.11.2 states: “Add support for hatch patterns defined per entity”. That may be?

Attached drawing from an older version; open in current and see a black box where there should be earth. Change scaling of hatch from 10 to 254 and it will be exactly the same it was when saving the file.

Curiously, that is like swapping inches and mm? Looking into prefs, there is a new drop down: “Messsytem für Linien und Schraffuren” and it read “imperial”; making it metric and bingo, my drawing looks as intended!

This is bad, because each drawing has to be changed! I changed the application default drawing setting to metric and the existing drawing still had imperial set…

Probably a heuristic was on order? If the drawing does not specify the new setting, and the drawing units is metric, use metric?

Reading  FS#441  I fired up the Library Browser, which works fine here, RC2 from tgz on Ubuntu 10.04, BTW.

The freedxf.com drawings “horseman” and two “women” claim to be “Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 3.0”. In my opinion, the “NonCommercial” clause does prohibit distribution in QCAD3, which is a commercial package. For a discussion see http://wiki.creativecommons.org/Defining_Noncommercial

 199 QCAD BugtrackerQCAD (main)Bug ReportMedium Print preview scaling distorts model view ClosedPeter Task Description

- Draw a rectangle, say 100 x 100 (I use mm unit, but does it matter?)
1
- Turn on print preview
- Turn off print preview
- OK
2
- Turn on print preview
- Set scale 1/10
- Lines are thicker now, this is good
- Turn off print previw
- Lines stay thick in model view, should that be so?
3
- Set layer 0 to use dash as line-style
- Turn on print preview
- Looks OK
- Set scale 1/10
- Dashes hardly visible, looks almost like a continuous line

In the end of 2,3 a way to reset line width display in model view is to cancel scaling in print preview, ie. turn on print preview, set scale 1:1. I suppose this is a regression since TP1: model view always is unscaled.

The line-width scaling is quite accurate now: Draw two lines 10 mm apart. Set line-width 0.5mm. Set scale 1:20 and the lines exactly touch.

 1534 QCAD BugtrackerQCAD (main)SuggestionLow Headless Styling ClosedPeter Task Description

Since the launcher batch no longer requests “-style plastique” QT wants to apply the native style of the desktop environment. This fails on a headless system (or where the current user has no graphical shell to connect to) with the message “Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display: “. Fortunately, QT provides a workaround in addtion to the new “platform=offscreen” flag.

In the tools that set -no-gui, beforehand export these variables into the environment

export QT_STYLE_OVERRIDE=""
export QT_QPA_PLATFORM=offscreen
export DISPLAY=""

PS: QT-offscreen will not find fonts; unfortunately the workaround only allows for a single directory to search them (I need helvetica):

export QT_QPA_FONTDIR="/usr/local/share/fonts/type1"

Maybe that should get reported upstream, so that like LD_LIBRARY_PATH several directories could be specified.

 1516 QCAD BugtrackerQCAD (main)SuggestionLow QT style on Linux ClosedPeter Task Description

I only noticed today (perhaps they were available earlier?) that there are 64 bit binaries for windows; I suppose these are true 64 bit.

Yet, the installer prompts me to put them into “Programs (x86)”, where all the 32bit software lives, I guess - this seems to be a pure convention though, the application runs just fine.

Maybe the reason is, that the 32bit version was installed before; Maybe it should change? Maybe it should stay, so that there are not two?

I wanted to make it so, that SVG units translate 1:1 into CAD units; I use the German localized QCAD and entered 25,4 into the box with the wrong result, i.e. the same as 25; Entering 25.4 got me what I wanted: The question box needs the point and ignores the comma. Would be nice if it could use the localized separator.

1230QCAD BugtrackerQCAD (main)Feature RequestLowFile > PDF Export / SVG Export: export layersAssignedPeter Task Description

Dear Andrew, just in case you should ever run out of ideas for enhancements; As an advisor I sometimes get PDF files and recently, some CAD drawings contained layers, which is kind of nifty to reduce the clutter.

Sadly though, qprinter/qpainter seem to be unaware of OCG (Optional Content Groups, the PDF jargon for layers) at the moment, so my plea is for the back burner now. Probably in SVG though it can be done? Yet that is of a little less use, maybe…

 1182 QCAD BugtrackerQCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Invisible dashed circles/splines ClosedPeter Task Description

Starting with 3.7.7 I noticed, that some parts in drawings are missing: affected are some circles and (some) closed splines. These were created with earlier releases of qcad3.

Attached a file that has two circles, only one of them showing at first (drawn in 3.8.0); set line-display “screen” (NL command) to see the other (drawn earlier). From the dxf serialization (dxflib or teigha does not matter) I do not see where that should stem from or how to fix this.

At zero degrees there is a little dot though, and also, only certain dashed line-types “hide” the (outer only) circle.

Filed under Ubuntu, not tested on windows etc.

 1178 QCAD BugtrackerECMAScriptBug ReportLow scripting definition point and vertical DIMs ClosedPeter Task Description

A regression? In my script I draw stacked dims (depth d):

    var c = RVector.getAverage(a, b); // Zentrum der Messung
    var dim = new RDimRotatedData();
    dim.setExtensionPoint1(a);
    dim.setExtensionPoint2(b);
    c.x = a.x + d * 50 + ( d > 0 ? 50 : -50 );
    dim.setDefinitionPoint(c);
    dim.setRotation(Math.PI / 2);

Curiosly, this would work in 3.7.5 but fail in 3.7.7: the DefinitionPoint would be ignored then, but only in vertical ones, not in horizontal ones!

More curiously still: The DIM gets drawn right as soon as I move the setRotation call before the setDefinitionPoint call!

PS: the debugger proved very helpful again :)

 1072 QCAD BugtrackerQCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Resolve Relative paths on command line ClosedPeter Task Description

I have aliased qcad to run it from terminal. There is a small glitch when opening a file from a different location using relative path names:

$ alias qcad
alias qcad='/opt/qcad-3.6.0-pro-linux-x86_64/qcad'

$ cd /a
$ qcad some.dwg &
$ cd /b
$ qcad other.dwg

Import Error is shown:
> Can't open file
> /a/other.dwg.
> File is empty.

$ qcad /b/other.dwg # absolute path works

$ readlink /proc/pid-of-qcad/cwd
/opt/qcad-3.6.0-pro-linux-x86_64

Qcad somewhere stores the path, from where it is first launched. The next “launch” will not use the next location but refer to the first one when constructing the full path name of the file name in the argument.

Maybe that can be easily improved (the message is wrong too).

When I export a bitmap from qcad, windows picture preview will not show it, instead print the message: “the file is in use by another application”. Maybe the exporter does not close the file?

 942 QCAD BugtrackerQCAD (main)Feature RequestLow Dirty flag (star) in MDI tab invisible when too many ta ...ClosedPeter Task Description

A window with a drawing that has unsafed changes gets an asterisk appended to its name in the tab title. When there too many tabs the title gets shortened and the star cannot be seen then.

It was nice, when the star remained visible, after or in front of the ellipses.

Also it was nice, when the “windows” menu would mark files with changes in the same way.

 916 QCAD BugtrackerQCAD (main)Feature RequestLow SVG export: make zero line width behaviour configurable ClosedPeter Task Description

Somewhere in the 3.1 series the SVG exporter (both precise and PG) started to make lines that are zero (0) width in CAD 0.01 (@scale 1:1) points wide in exported files (0.1 @scale 1:10). I use such lines to constrain exported files to a common size and rather not have them show. In my view, this is a regression, as there is no reason for changing line weight, isnt it? If I wanted the lines to have weight, I’d draw them with a weight.

 603 QCAD BugtrackerQCAD (main)Bug ReportLow SVG import straight path segments ClosedPeter Task Description

I noticed, that paths are not fully imported into QCAD. I rewrote case “m” of “SvgImporter” like below, that way also straight line segments are drawn correctly. Case “M” should be similar:

      case 'm':
          x = ox = coords[0];
          y = oy = coords[1];
          x0 = x;
          y0 = y;
          for (k=2; k<coords.length; k+=2) {
              x += coords[k+0];
              y += coords[k+1];
              this.importLine(ox, oy, x, y);

          break;
512QCAD BugtrackerQCAD (main)Feature RequestLowModify stretch and Restrict orthoAssigned1Peter Task Description

The modify stretch tool wants first and second corner, start and end point, then starts afresh. When I turn on restrict horizontally eg to align two points between start and end, the restriction sticks and I have to call restrict none, to be able to perform the next iteration, set the first corner then.

So, in the quest for a comfortable user interface, it was nice, if the modify stretch first/second corners parameter setting was not affected by current restrict/ortho etc. settings. Actually, that does not make any sense at all anyways, does it, a rectangle is defined by two degrees of freedom, isnt it?

 483 QCAD BugtrackerQCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Return value of autostart applications ClosedPeter Task Description

Whe qcad runs a script from the autostart command line argument, then, if this script ends with an error, the qcad main function should not return 0, but something different, because the return value of 0 is conventionally used to indicate successful operation.

I enter this as a bug, rather than a feature request, because this convention is so entrained (at least in *NIX land), that it breaks fundamental expecations on application behaviour.

 368 QCAD BugtrackerQCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Appearance preference ClosedPeter Task Description

RC1 is lazy in saving appearance to config. I noticed, because it always started with default window size. Maximizing was not carried over, also the panels were consistently reset.

Only when eg. dragging the handle to change cad-toolbar width not from preferences it would write an “appearance” section to the config file.

The appearance section should be written rather sooner than later.

 362 QCAD BugtrackerQCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Regression in SvgExporterPG.prototype.exportEntity ClosedPeter Task Description

In RC1 text in PG SVG will be in the wrong location. The position passed from native code to the SvgExporterPG.prototype.exportEntity is wrong:

Instead of the actual place of the text it gets the position of the surrounding block entity, or, for text that is not in a block, “0,0,0”.

Dimension labels are not affected by this. Also HAlign and VAlign are not passed correctly for text in the model-view block.

 324 QCAD BugtrackerECMAScriptFeature RequestLow SVG export depends on GUI ClosedPeter Task Description

SvgExporter.js uses PrintPreview to parse the scale string, and therefore depends on the qt GUI part. That should not make maintenance harder to call RMath directly there? Results seem to match from a first look.

The capability of running headless, ie. without GUI, is a very welcome addition to QCAD. I suggest one more improvement:

When an exception occurs in a script (running from autostart) and no-gui was opted for on the command line, QCAD should not try to bring up the debugger ever (regardless of any preferences), but print the message of the exception and possibly a backtrace instead.

Otherwise all errors will produce the same message…

Chat from  FS#194  singled out, so that can be closed.

Dash patterns in BETA2 are very much out of proportion. BETA2 always PG exports 1:1 and only scales strokes so that in the final rendering they match what a technical drawing would show. As dash patterns depend on stroke, both current stroke and final scale have to be brought in accord.

The patch below also restores the alignment of dashes, so that dashed lines do not end in a gap, at least in most occasions.

 202 QCAD BugtrackerQCAD (main)Bug ReportLow SVG PG export font colors ClosedPeter Task Description

White text gets exported as white text, while it should be exported as black text. Just like it is with lines. Attached patch makes text rendering use the conversion function that is already in the code base.

 200 QCAD BugtrackerQCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Patterned lines uncorrectly scaled in print preview ClosedPeter Task Description

In print preview lines are correctly scaled to stay the same width when printed, ie 0.25 or so mm thick. Print preview shows that very good.

But the round line-caps mess up the display, as in small scale the line-caps start to meet and make the line look like a continous one.

Print preview should not only correct line weight but also line patterns, so that the distance between dashes increase by scale.

 198 QCAD BugtrackerQCAD (main)Bug ReportLow SVG PG export dimensions ClosedPeter Task Description

SVG PG exporter, scaled or unscaled, currently only exports the labels of dimensions. Missing are

ticks, arrows, and lines of the dimension.

It will not be as simple as inkscape does it, wrap it all in a <def>.
